Zidane signs three-year contract extension at Real Madrid

"I am very happy for this confidence [from the club]".

The range of talent in Real's squad explains why their recent transfer activities have been geared towards building for the future rather than the immediate present, bringing in 19-year-old full back Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid and Spain under-21 midfielder Dani Ceballos.

While the 21-year-old - who joined Los Blancos from Real Mallorca in 2015 - does not want to leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, he is prepared to if manager Zinedine Zidane cannot offer him assurances of more game time.

Asensio joined Madrid from Mallorca for just £3m in 2014 and he's developed in to one of the hottest properties in Spanish football over the past three years.

The agreement includes a massive 700-million-euro release clause, with Real following a policy of securing their stars with prohibitive figures in a bid to avoid the scenario that recently saw Paris Saint-Germain sign Neymar from Barcelona by paying his 222-million-euro buy-out fee.

Isco arrived from Malaga for a fee of €30 million euros and though he struggled to nail down a regular spot for a while at the Bernabeu, he has grown to become a vital player for Zinedine Zidane's side and was an integral part of their unprecedented back-to-back Champions League success, and La Liga win. "I'm happy for working so well with my staff".

Of course, that means that Real Madrid would have to win the head-to-head tiebreaker, given that goal difference is not the first tiebreaker in La Liga. And the objectives are always the same: trying to win every single game and every single title.

"They have had changes but Barcelona are Barcelona".

Barcelona's summer has centered around the loss of Neymar and the club's attempts in the past fortnight to replace him. "We are enjoying a lot our job".

With Neymar gone, Barcelona will look to Lionel Messi to repeat his outstanding performance from the last competitive "clasico" played against Madrid in April.

Cristiano Ronaldo is rested and ready to take on Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup. "If we think it is going to be easier tomorrow we will be mistaken".
